When I think about someone listening to this show, I imagine each guest reaching out of the phone to offer the listener something we all desperately need: the ability to believe that we are capable of accomplishing great things and creating a huge impact. And today’s guest, Jason Coombs, has a profound story that I believe will do just that.
Jason Coombs is the Founder of Brick House Recovery, a faith-based addiction treatment center in Boise, Idaho – and Jason himself is living proof that this program works.
After a car accident, Jason was offered his first Oxycontin (crushed up and in a line) and an opportunity to get his own prescription. A few months later, the FBI and DEA knocked on his door to serve him four felonies and a misdemeanor… and that wasn’t even the worst of it.
The fraudulent doctor’s office that prescribed Jason was the center of the largest Oxycontin ring in history, and after it was gone hundreds of addicts had nowhere else to go. So they went to the black market, where prices skyrocketed and Jason drained his bank account. Eventually, Jason moved on to heroin – a cheaper and more available alternative.
Jason tried to control his drug use for nearly ten years, attempting five treatment programs and failing. He was taught “what” addiction was, “where” it could lead, and “why” it was destructive to him, but something was missing. Finally, following the program he now shares with others through Brick House Recovery, Jason and his family learned how to put the disease into remission, one day at a time.
Now, clean and sober for many years, Jason passes on this faith-based approach to his clients and their families.
We all get to decide whether what we’ve been given is a gift or not. We all get to control the narrative of our own life and how we share it with others – and we can choose to use our stories to make a huge, positive impact.
